Anadolu Agency: Poland remembers Warsaw Ghetto Uprising 80 years on

Wednesday, April 19 marks the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising — the first large-scale urban uprising in Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II. At an official commemoration, Israeli President Isaac Herzog and his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda were joined by Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the first German president to take part in the commemorations.

The 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was an act of Jewish resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto in German-occupied Poland during World War II to oppose Nazi Germany’s final attempt to transport the remaining ghetto population to death camps.

After the Grossaktion of the summer of 1942, in which a quarter-million Jews were deported from the Warsaw ghetto to the Treblinka extermination camp in Poland and murdered, the remaining Jews built bunkers and smuggled weapons into the ghetto.
